Pickin' on WHRV this week gets in the holiday spirit with songs all about family, eating, and being together.  We’ll hear from Larry Sparks, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Blue Highway, and JD Crowe. We’ll also feature Big Country Bluegrass who for 35 years has provided a heartfelt feeling of traditional hard-hitting Americana Music. Also, on this week’s show is the Chicago based band Special Consensus and their tribute to John Denver with a cover of his “Back Home Again” song. Denver’s 1974 album by the same name topped the charts and cemented him as a major influence in pop and country music. Special Consensus brought together a “Who’s Who” of Bluegrass to perform Denver’s best-known tunes. I think “Back Home Again” is the gem of the release. Hear for yourself.

Sunday night at 7 on WHRV 89.5 FM.
